Prince William was gifted a special kippah, a Jewish skullcap, by the UK’s Chief Rabbi Mirvis. The kippah is inscribed with an important Bible verse, Isaiah 2:3.
“And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.” – Isaiah 2:3
The kippah was worn by the prince as he honoured the 6 million Jewish victims of the Holocaust at Yad Vashem, Israel’s national Holocaust museum. Chief Rabbi Mirvis was honoured to accompany Prince William during his historic visit to the Jewish state.

Rabbi Mirvis said: “Today’s visit to Yad Vashem was profoundly moving and deeply inspiring. The Duke of Cambridge is a figurehead for a younger generation and he has previously mentioned to me that he feels a particular responsibility to ensure that the lessons of the Holocaust are learned. As the generation of survivors sadly dwindles, there can be no more powerful indication of our commitment to protecting their legacy than the presence of the future Monarch at Yad Vashem.”
